Power heads for proper water circulation is most important. Your LR and LS are your best bio filtration as long as you have the minimum amount of LR and LS and water flow with good LR placement and powerhead placement . This would out do any canister filter out there. Well with proper stocking and feeding habits. Theres really no one way to control any unwanted reading , but many ways. The canisterwould be a waste of money at this time. With low to no stock its overkill.
Like usual your LFS needs sales to feed his family and isnt giving good advice. I could type for an hour strait and only confuse you more. Get a good book and research any new purchase.

Can anyone recomend a particluar brand of canister for SW.
